This is not true, as stated both in official statements and
confirmed by UFO researcher Ubirajara Rodrigues, the first and
main Varginha Case researcher, who was asked to give his
affidavit in this inquiry, both of which conflicts with the
version you present. Rodrigues clarified to me the inquiry has
been openly available for public view immediately after it was
archived. As is required by law, and as the Inquiry has nothing
extraordinary about it. Rodrigues has a copy of it, and he
didn't get it through the IstoE journalists nor through your
campaign (which obtained the copy from IstoE).

I have spent years and my own money researching the Trindade
case. And I shared documents with fellow researchers, including
those with a different opinion on it. You lost the first prints
you received from Barauna.

It's interesting you would say the Trindade Navy Documents "have
nothing useful or revealing", because they are as useful and
revealing as the ones released by the Air Force and claimed by
your campaign. Just like theirs, they reveal some authorities
believe in the ETH, to the point of having this belief stated in
official reports and even policy, but the actual evidence to
support these beliefs is as uncertain as the ones we civilians
deal with.

Certainly. That's why the BAF has cleverly determined, through
its published legislation, that incidents related to National
Security are to be treated differently. The UFO-related
policies have no priority over other policies regarding
security classification. Also, they didn't even establish a
schedule for the reports it receives to be forwarded to the
National Archives.

What I see is that the Brazilian Air Force has followed the
clever international policy -- begun by the US after ending
Project Bluebook -- which only undermines naive conspiracy
theorists. The more disclosure we see, the more the skeptical
position is favored.

I'm not replying to personal claims and attacks. I made none,
and I will consider none.
